Forum: GratefulDead Subject: "Bucket List"- The artist who make it worth every penny.

There have been countless shows over the years, but just a few times during them where everything just sorta came together and it all rolled into this one big satisfying moment of exhilarating bliss. True moments of clarity that only a live music experience can bring. A sort of short lived nirvana, or a glimpse of heaven moment you could call them. These guys are not getting any younger, and I have been reflecting on how lucky I have been to see some of them perform. Recently I saw Paul Simon in concert and it happened again. He pulled off a "Sounds of Silence" solo acoustic that left me sitting there in tears of joy. I have now been thinking about all the shows I have seen over the years, and at which performance and during which song where I have had this overwhelming sense of peace and joy at what I had just witnessed. Here are just a few of mine that I still remember. Would love to see and hear about yours. I saw a lotta shows in the '90's from these '60's stalwarts.
They won't be around forever, but you will still have your memories.

Neil Young- "After the Gold Rush" CSN&Y '98
